Following are the major reasons why freelancers fail :-

1) Want to earn from 1st day-
At first you need to work for free or at low cost until you build your good portfolio
If you don't have any work to show and you are asking people to pay then it's very hard for you to get clients

2) Don't have enough patience-
Freelancing industry is competitive so you will not get clients very easily
If you are not ready to put efforts and you want fast results then you will surely fail

3) Don't update their skills-
Only basic knowledge is not enough
You have to keep learning and updating your skills

4) Setting too big goal-
Example:- I will earn 10k $ in my first month

5) Trying to master everything-
Having expert in specific skill is important
If you try to learn everything then you will be nowhere

✓ Note these points if you are thinking to start freelancing journey

Absolutely! Agreed with what your mentioned, setting sight on one single skill will help to become successful and able to master it.

@vetriyad absolutely right. I also quit affiliate marketing because i had no patience neither i enjoyed doing it.

Hi friend,

Affiliate marketing is awesome. But we also need patience for it.

Patience = Success

Patience with Hardwork = success

Yes, you are right, but I believe, smart work is 5 times better than hard work.

Smart working means if you can do a work with 10 steps, then why should you do it in 100 steps, however smart working still requires hard work. I mean working all day with smart work is also a hard work.

Short cut always cut people short.. It's better for one to suffer and get the right process to success than to be in haste for fast money it leads to failure

@batoolabbas people don't understand the world business, they take this as a job and expect to get guaranteed earning. They don't know the difference between business and job.

There is a huge difference between business and job.

• There is steady income in the job but not in the business.

• The businessman has to take huge risks whereas in a job there is less amount of risk.

✓ In total , in a job you have to work towards the vision of your boss. 

✓ While in business , you have to work towards your own vision.

Yes. Job and business are two different things and both needs different efforts and time. 

Along with different efforts and time :- 

• There is also enormous difference in taking risks as well as revenue generated by both of them.

Hey brother ! 

• As everyone have different opinions , I do not agree with you totally.

• After doing so much of practice (hardwork) only ; smart work comes in your life.

✓ For example - When we were child , we all use to take some extra time to brush teeth. But as of now , we don't take that much time as well as some of us do some other tasks while brushing teeth.

???? What is the point ?

• The point is that after doing daily practice of brushing teeth has eventually resulted in smart work which requires lesser time now to brush our teeth.

✓ And this is applied almost everywhere.

???? After doing lots of practice only you can acess zone of smart work.

 

Hope you get it as I have explained it in short.Thanks !!

Very true. Business has greater risk than a job but the greater the risk the more the profit.

Yes working for hours and days is not important, you need to have proper strategy to become successful online.

• Quality matters while doing any work , not how much time you have spend.

✓ Quality time while working is what going to make you successful. 

 

????  POINT TO BE REMEBER !!

Ya Right !!

• Like you can't have all types of dishes at once , right ?

• So focusing on only one task at one time is really really important. 

✓ In addition to this , many of the successful people has also said that -

"You should work one and only single mindedly."

✓ This benefits us in many ways.

(Saying from my own experience)

Patience is the key to success.

✓ But many people lack patience nowadays.

✓ "HUMANS ATTENTION SPAN AND PATIENCE IS LESS THAN GOLDFISH , THANKS TO MOBILE PHONES."

• Who didn't get it , it was a sarcasm as we can't be happy for this.

In freelancing, you gain a level of mastery before making money from it. Many missed it here, they want to get orders at the instance of signing up.

But it's not possible at all.

• As we know , that early success is a scam.

• Success requires lots of dedication and hard work as well as we have to sacrifice fun for success.

Following are some of the risks that online business can face :-

1) Online security :- 

As there are so many security threats like malware , hacking , etc.

2) System Reliability :-

As there is possibility of crashing the server.

3) Credit card fraud or customer disputes 

 

NOTE :-

NO MATTER HOW GOOD YOUR ONLINE SECURITY IS  , ALWAYS WATCH OUT FOR ANY SUSPICIOUS TRANSACTIONS.

Short cut always cut people short.. It's better for one to suffer and get the right process to success than to be in haste for fast money it leads to failure 

No Shortcuts

• You remember the story of the man who stops a musician on a street in New York and asks how he can get to Carnegie Hall. The musician replies, “Practice, man, practice.” Practice is the key to mastering any skill. Fortunately, your mind is like a muscle. It grows stronger and more capable with use.

✓ With practice, you can learn any behavior or develop any habit that you consider either desirable or necessary.

 

NOTE :- 

THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SHORTCUT TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

I do agree with this especially patience! Admin alone is the best example. If I can remember it right, he started to earn from his website a year after publishing it. That's one hell of patience! Perseverance is another key important quality that you must possess. Great post my friend! ????
